The central enemy of reliability is complexity.

So far I blogged here only about failing at my first marathon. The lessons learned paid off in the end. Meanwhile I ran two official marathons: My debut in Dresden 2013 (03:55:16) and in 2014 I ran the Berlin marathon (03:55:13). Success is worth mentioning too, right? 😉
Both I was able to finish in under 4h. For me that’s a great result especially for the debut in Dresden. Great achievements? Well for sure, but no reason to settle. Actually a good foundation to build upon: Now I am aiming at running my first ultra marathon! In 2015 I would like to run 50km at once. Does not necessarily have to be an official race, something in the country side would be great, as a contrast to the city runs.
My biggest challenge still seems to be the one I am already use to: Don’t train too hard, don’t get hurt.
Let’s go!! 🙂
